Proposal: Everything We Taught You Last Year Was Wrong

Reaches quorum, 15-1. Josh

Replace the first paragraph of Rule 2.5 (Lessons) with:-

As a daily action, the Headmaster may call a Lesson by posting a blog entry with the subject “[SUBJECT] Lesson: [LEVEL] [SPECIALISATION] with [TEACHER]”, where [SUBJECT] is a Subject, [LEVEL] is an optional adjective of either “Basic”, “Intermediary” or “Advanced” (if omitted, the Lesson is counted as Intermediate), [SPECIALISATION] is any word or phrase and [TEACHER] is the Teacher who will give the Lesson. An Advanced Lesson may only be given by a Teacher who has that Subject as their Field.

If a Student has not yet commented on the post and is not on Detention, they may take one of the following Class Actions by posting a comment on this entry describing their behaviour:-

Remove the first Class Action from the bulleted list in Rule 2.5, and add two new items in its place:-

  • If a Student Studies in a Basic or Intermediate Lesson, they may either set their Grade in that Lesson’s Subject to ‘C’, or increment their current Grade in that Lesson’s Subject.
  • If a Student Studies in an Advanced Lesson, they may either set their Grade in that Lesson’s Subject to ‘E’, or (if their Grade is D or higher) raise their current Grade in that Lesson’s Subject by two levels.

And replace “If a Student Disrupts a Lesson” with “If a Student Disrupts an Intermediate or Advanced Lesson”.

To the first paragraph of Rule 2.4 (Grades), add:-

If a Grade would be incremented above A+, it remains A+; if it would be decremented below F, it remains F.

Defining three levels of Lesson - Intermediate act as normal, Basic ones are too simple to be Disrupted, and Advanced classes are harder to get started in but double the rate of progress.

Also allowing Students to Brown-Nose without having an A+ - the fact you have to give up an entire Lesson’s Study bonus seems price enough, and you could easily be wasting your time if a better Student decided to out-Nose you in response.

for Still would like to be able to disrupt Basic classes, but it seems fair.
